About Wonderkop Nature Reserve

Named after one of its major features, a koppie (little hill) called Wonderkop, Wonderkop Nature Reserve lies roughly 115 kilometres north of Mokopane in the Waterberg.

Did you know? Wonderkop is home to the rare Roan antelope and sable antelope.

The pretty Wonderkop reserve, surrounded by red bushwillow trees, is bounded on its eastern border by the Mogalakwena River and the Glen Alpine Dam. It is part-run by the Tlale Ga-Morudu community – an example of community public/private partnership, promoted by Limpopo Tourism and Parks.

These 'new concept' reserves are created around the principle of integrating local communities and are a commitment to sustainable development and environmental awareness.

Wonderkop Nature Reserve also happens to border on the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve – an internationally recognised biosphere reserve that stretches from Marakele National Park in the south west to Wonderkop in the north east.

This expansive basin, not only incredibly beautiful but over three million years old, includes no fewer than four of the major rivers in the Limpopo that travel through a landscape dominated by endless panoramic views, undulating hills and a real feeling of being in the bushveld. The Waterberg and its neighbouring nature reserves are an important conservation area, and Wonderkop is no exception.

Wonderkop is home to the rare Roan antelope and sable antelope, and you will easily manage to see blue wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and gemsbok - admittedly not the Big 5, but then not everyone is overly intent on ticking lion, elephant and rhino off their list.
